Principal's Message

I am the proud principal of Douglass K-8 Optional School where excellence is the expectation!  DK8 is a special place deeply rooted in love, legacy, pride, achievement, and community.  As an educator within Memphis-Shelby County Schools for over 14 years, I am vested in our children, their success, and continued growth.

Our shared vision at Douglass K-8 is grounded in building strong relationships, supporting one another, and holding ourselves and others accountable. It is truly an honor to be a part of a community that shares a standard of excellence and requires greatness of ALL children.  By building strong relationships and partnerships, supporting teachers' professional growth, and holding myself as well as others accountable to our school-wide goals, I am confident Douglass K-8 Optional School will not only experience increased student achievement but continue to thrive as a vibrant part of the North Memphis community for years to come. 

With you,

Principal Causey

Choose Douglass K-8. Choose Excellence. We are Douglass STRONG!
